Editorial Reviews


An excellent addition to the growing number of books and CDs dedicated to mastering the art of jazz improvisation. Useful to beginners as well as advanced players, The Blues Scales admirably addresses the vocabulary of the blues, the 'root of jazz. MICHAEL BRECKER --Personal correspondence

To actually play the blues, you have to know what's in the blues. Dan has done a marvelous job of dissecting the blues and then bringing all the pieces back together so you can make beautiful music. This book will help those who want to have fun playing the blues. JAMEY AEBERSOLD --Personal correspondence

Dan has done a great job with this book! A good method for teaching blues and jazz improvising to beginning students has been much needed. It has been a long time coming, but finally that need has been filled. JUNIOR MANCE --Personal correspondence
